Steilacoom Historical Education Foundation (SHEF) was founded in 1993 and in 1995 joined Scholarship America: Dollars for Scholars (DFS) to expand the impact of the scholarships awarded each year. One of the prime benefits of this membership is the Collegiate Partners agreement. These higher learning institutions have agreed not to reduce institutional aid to students who receive scholarships administered by DFS affiliates. In addition, many of these colleges have also agreed to match the local scholarships given to these students when they attend these schools. This ensures that local scholarship money reduces higher education expenses for our students and their families. 

DFS is a national organization advocating for those pursuing higher education. They provide national scholarships, resources such as The Scholarship Coach and financial literacy information, and opportunities to further explore the application process, test prep and networking. SHEF fully endorses the offerings of the DFS program.

SHEF is an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
